Located eighty-six miles east of Aruba (50 miles north of Venezuela and 30 miles east of Curacao), the island of Bonaire offers year round sunshine and breathtaking scenery. Due to its positioning, this idyllic island is outside of the hurricane belt and consequently enjoys beautiful weather throughout the year. With average air temperatures of 82°F, and water temperatures averaging 80°F, there is little rainfall and easterly trade winds provide mild breezes to keep conditions ideal for vacationing year round. Bonaire also offers excellent scuba diving, snorkeling and windsurfing, and has been designated as having the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration.
In addition to a beautiful setting, Harbour Village Beach Club offers world class diving with an on-site dive and water sports center catering to beginners and experts alike. Bonaire has been designated as having the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the NOAA and is consistently named Best Overall Dive Destination by Scuba Diving Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Awards. Due to the island’s leeward location outside of the hurricane belt, and its consistently pleasant climate, crystal-clear visibility prevails at any depth. Harbour Village features a First Class 5 Star Instructor Development Center, Great Adventures Bonaire, within the resort and intriguing dive sites just off its shore. The resort also offers unforgettable florescence night diving, utilizing UV light to see the astounding array of fluorescent colors emitted by the underwater nightlife. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation lists eight out of almost 90 of Bonaire’s dive sites in their top 10 in terms of species richness in the Caribbean — abundant underwater life includes more than 300 species of tropical fish and over 120 different types of coral. The island is able to maintain this environment and receive awards for Bonaire diving year after year because its surrounding waters have been protected as the Bonaire National Marine Park for over 30 years.
